Whitefish Bay is a college preparatory high school that really prepares its students through rigorous academic classes. However, it’s academics are not it’s only highlight. The music department produces beautiful department concerts, the art department produces artists whose art is auctioned off locally, yearly, and the athletics contain nationally ranked athletes as well as teams. Overall Whitefish Bay High school is a great place to learn, develop, and enjoy high school!

I have really enjoyed my time at Whitefish Bay High School! The courses can be extremely rigorous, but the teachers make the classes so interesting and are always willing to help. It's so easy to go in and talk to them individually if you're struggling in class or just want to talk! Whitefish Bay also has a huge variety of sports (GO DUKES) and other extracurricular clubs that you can and should join to help make high school a fun experience. However, WFBHS needs to come with a stress overload warning...
My family has had three generations attend Whitefish Bay High School, and all three generations have had a great experience. The academics have ranked Whitefish Bay as the number one public school in Wisconsin and the teachers prepare you very well for college. All the sports are at a high level and hundreds of students come together to cheer on one another. WFB provides clubs for all types of people and interests, my personal favorite being Best Buddies which works with kids who have an intellectual and developmental disability. Most aspects of the high school are excellent, but one part that could improve is the diversity within the school. It would be great if one day the environment could be more diverse and integrated.
